I'm sorry to say that will be a bit of a challenge, especially if you're interested in the Highlands area. The rental market in Denver has been exploding recently and remains pretty tight. Most owners are seeking to capitalize on the situation with much higher rents, especially in desirable areas.

Are there other parts of the metro area you might consider? Or is your budget adjustable?

Best of luck,
Tony & Karen

I am assuming you are looking for a rental? I suggest you look on this website plus Craigslist,,, and Zillow which are the main places. It is a very strong rental market, so have your references and credit scores ready, and be prepared to make a decision.

Good luck

Hi Kevirose: My clients have told me that Trulia's rental search engine is often the best. But you might want to check out my blog post below for all the websites with reasonably reliable information about current rentals. Note that I said "reasonably reliable." All these sites try to protect you from scams, but the scammers keep coming up with new ways to cheat you. So be careful. If something sounds suspicious, trust your instincts. And take care of your own safety when going to showings.

Kind regards,

Going to be a huge challenge. Base rental rates for a one bedroom at $1200-$1400 a month in that area. You may be able to find something in Curtis Park or North City Park.

Hi Steph~. You're a bit early in asking for an August 1st rental. Most landlords ask for 30-60 days' notice so they wouldn't be advertising for a tenant yet.

Two local websites/forums that you can look for rentals: and Both of those sites have real estate forums that would have local, Evergreen rentals on them.

I can also give you the names of a few property management companies if you'd like. Call or email me.

Hi Irene,
I have not lived in either apartments. In regards to safety I would recommend calling the Pueblo police department non-emergency line and inquiring about crime in those areas. They will be able to provide you with the facts you are looking for. I hope this helps! ... more

Hi Darlene,

I don't know of any. That could be a tough call. I assume you have tried the usual resources of Craigslist and The Denver rental market is running at over 98% capacity now. I hope you have better success in Strasburg.

Sorry to hear you have had a bad couple of years.

I am assuming that you are looking to rent. There isn't a rental MLS system, so I recommend looking on Craigslist at least 2 times a day, also Zillow, Trulia, Hotpads, Get some good references ready to present and be ready to make a decision if you see one you like.

good luck

There are landlords that will help you. Something you should look into is renting to own. I've seen alot of places that don't require good credit.

It sounds like you are looking for a rental. Unfortunately they don't have their own MLS style of one stop shopping like homes for sale do. Currently the single largest listing source is Craigslist but there are smaller ones as well.
That link gets you to 'all housing' and you'll want to use both the filter and search options as there are lots of listings.

They have a useful 'show on map' feature as well because here, like everywhere location is key and downtown is generally the most desirable. Please do be cautious as there are scams on Craigslist so if it seems too good to be true... it may be.
Good luck and if you are looking to buy please let me know,

Jan Baer answered:
If you are willing to complete a rental application and back ground check, pay First/Last months rent and a security deposit there are many landlords out there willing to work with you. Honesty is the best policy, just be upfront and forthright in your application and explanation of this past felony. Don't let it haunt you. Are you gainfully employed? If so, Have your employer write a reference on your behalf.
You need to work with a property management company who can help you secure good rental housing.
Check on line ads daily. The rental market is tight right now. More rental properties will open up after the school year ends in May. That typically when most folks move. Good luck!!
